Lamborghini Urus hits 200 unit sales milestone in India
Lamborghini has delivered the 200th unit of the Urus in India. The SUV accounts for nearly 50% of the brand's sales on our shores. It took the Italian supercar maker just under four years to reach the milestone, even with the global pandemic and ongoing semiconductor shortage.

Why does this story matter?
